  • Apart from permission for location under Employee Data -> location, we are also fetching the nameTranslation value for that location. If this is not present we don’t show the location.

  • nameTranslation is a FO object -> FOTranslation.


  • FO Translation can either be a secured object or a non secured object.
  • To confirm this, go to Configure Object Definition > FO Translation > Check under security
  • If the object is a non secured object, then you have to ensure that the user has RBP Permissions:
    Metadata Framework > Access to non-secured objects
  • If the object is a secured object, then check for respective permission in Metadata Framework objects or where the Permission Category is defined.
